Phoenix is glad to be home following a 1-2 road trip on which the Mercury were 1-2 ATS while giving up 96 points per game (Phoenix is 8-2 on the over).
Seattle is coming off their worst loss of the season, a 27-point embarrassment in Los Angeles. The Storm have lost by their widest margins as road favorites.
The Mercury have one of the best home records in the league — their sole home loss came against Seattle on 6/21, in which Phoenix hit their last under. In six wins, Seattle’s Big Two — Lauren Jackson and Sue Bird — score 46.8 percent of their points (in three losses, 43.8%). In the Storm’s win at Phoenix, Jackson and Bird combined for 49 percent of the scoring.
Wednesday’s game is the only game on the WNBA schedule. If Phoenix wins, they move ahead of Seattle into second place in the Western Conference. If Seattle wins, they move into a first-place tie with Minnesota.
